Why do my text messages get stuck "sending?"
tiffanymh20

Too often my text messages will get stuck at "sending" and never send unless i turn my device off and back on. When they do send, they are sent multiple times.

I have the LG G4.

I also do not receive many texts until hours later.

2 things to try:  1, if you have many threads, delete a few, or all, backup the messages if you need them with SMS Backup and Restore or Verizon Messages+.  2, remove the SIM card for a min or two, then reinsert it, power off and power back on.  Some phones require you to remove the battery before you can remove the SIM.  I speak from G2 experience, but I can remove mine from the side of the bezel.

I want you to be able to send and receive messages tiffanymh20. Have you been able to try what Snn5 suggested? What message application are you using? How long has this been going on for? Is anyone else having this issue?
